My short story “Neighbours” from Lovers and Strangers Revisited as part of the 6th cycle texts for SMP Literature has been extended again through SPM 2015. The 7th cycle texts (so far unknown, I think) will begin for SPM 2016.
Again the stories from that original collection, after 20 years, is still going strong, heading into its 21st year (and even 22nd year).
Let’s hope another of my short stories from the collection will be selected for the 7th cycle, perhaps “Home for Hari Raya” recently taught and filmed by Ohio University, or “Merkeda Miracle”written with Lydia Teh and Tunku Halim for Going Places (August 2009), the in-flight magazine Malaysia Airlines.
